Track Name: Let's Dance
My faux pas's alone should of sent me home
I'm not leaving my spot
With ten thousand things that I have found
I still haven't found a lot

Ah, the days of wandering
Adventures remind me that i'm broke
I've got even money that my mind holds out
But the soles of my shoes won't

I got the black shakes from the water in my tap
And people on the street just hit me up for cash

The skyline is a freakshow and you know
We're not here by chance
But if you just say it's all right, all right
I'll teach you the meaning of romance

Lets dance

The streets they look so peaceful
From twenty stories above the ground
A cool breeze blows on a hot summer night
And I swear I'm not coming down

The future's ripe with promise
I wanna know when will that be
I don't wanna be another stereotype
Successful and totally unhappy

I got the black shakes from the water in my tap
And people on the street still hit me up for cash

The skyline is a freakshow and you know
We're not here by chance
But if you just say it's all right, all right
I'll teach you the meaning of romance

Lets dance
Track Name: Love, Or
Love Or

(spoken)
This song is not about love
It's about potato chips
This is a song about being broke
and where to find free entertaiment

No Food
No Health Care
Uh huh

No Money
For Taxi Fare
Uh huh

But you couldn't wipe the smiles from our faces
When we're sneakin out of each others places

cuz we've got love or genitals


Can't afford haircuts
or laundry soap
uh huh

Late on the rent
How do you cope,
well uh-huh

Well hold on tight to your subway passes
or we're jumpin turnstiles riskin our asses
uh huh

but we've got love or PBR


People get down on their situations
well uh huh
watchin the other half slurping libations
uh huh

we don't got time to be depressed
as we try to get each other undressed
uh huh


cuz we've got love or naked wrestling


cuz we've got love or genitals
Track Name: That's Love
when we kiss just like we mean it
though we met one hour ago
write your number on a napkin
while our drunken heads hang low

so that's looooooove

when we're walking through the city
in a we're just friends disguise
and you lean over and tell me
all your pretty perfect lies

that's love

when we talk about adventures
underneath the sun and moon
and we plan on having all of them
if we ever leave your room

that's love

when you tell me how you're feeling
and repeat it with your eyes
and I ask you all the reasons
and you say you don't know why

thats looooooove

spring time you hear the sound
sun coming back around
icicles falling down
I'm crashing to the ground

sun coming back around
spring time you hear the sound
rain falling falling down
I'm melting to the ground

rain falling hear it pound
sun coming back around
now you can hear the sound
everything coming down

everything coming down
sun coming back around
now you can hear the sound
ashes we all fall

down

down.......

I'm burning down
I'm burning down

when you tell me that you love me
and you say it all the time
but you always change the subject
when I ask if you are mine

that's looooooooove

I've had enoooooooooooough
Track Name: Leaving Town Today
I'm leaving town today
cause this doesn't fit my style
I really can't delay
I'll call you in a while

I would like to see you
I would like to see you cryin
would I rather see you
I wanna see you
I wanna see
see you smile

I'm leaving town today
I really must get out
there's nothing more to say
there's nothing more to shout

so this might be the last time
you wanna hold on as we lay here dying
you wanna see me for the last time
this is the last time
this is the last time

so make it count

I'm leaving town today
and you don't have to come
say you don't love me it's ok
cause i think you want me gone
I never did believe it
you say you love me but I think you're lying
I wanted you to prove it
you couldn't prove it
this is the last time

and then I'll say so long
Track Name: Soon
in two thousand 30, they say we'll have an epidemic
science provided us all of the cures it can give
as nations break down the world will decay in global panic

they say that we don't have many more years left to live

the bombs are all out there - just flip a switch and it'll happen
we'll all try to hide but there just will not be enough room
with so many people just itching to blow up somethin

they say the end is coming
they say the end is coming
they say the end is coming
soon

it could be hurricanes
it could be foreign raids
it could be outer-space
it could be anything

wiping out queens and kings
wiping out diamond rings
wiping out angel wings
wiping out everything

mothers and enemies
sun signs and seven seas
your city from the trees
outlet mall shopping sprees
violins, drums, kazoos
history, morning news
mysteries missing clues
people to give them to- day

today

they say the end is coming

this is your chance cause this time the world is really ending
paint the town red just like the apocalypse moon
go be that hero that yesterday you were but pretending

cause they say the end is coming
they say the end is coming
they say the end is coming...

soon
Track Name: World I Made [acoustic radio version]
write our words together
write them down all the seeds
spread over the world and
growing into all the trees

people brushing past them
suddenly feel you and me
turn around and round and
turn into the world I see

Aaaaaah
aaaaaah
aaaaah
aaaaaaaaaaah

orange pop is pouring
from the cotton candy sky
set into the ocean
run into the sea we find

pictures run together
pictures when I close my eyes
fall into the center
center of this world of mine

Aaaaaah
aaaaaah
aaaaah
aaaaaaaaaaah

ah... million different things
all with each other interweaved
twisting through the air and
twisting through the seas and trees

pieces of forever
everything that we have saved
pieces come together
turn into the world I made

Aaaaaah
aaaaaah
aaaaah
aaaaaaaaaaah
